Description

New York Times-Bestselling Author: A daughter of wealth and privilege dies in a frozen-over Maine pond, and a sleuthing reporter is on the case...

The last surviving flowers on Lucy Stone's porch have fallen victim to the first frost of the season. On the bright side, Thanksgiving, and the annual Turkey Trot 5K, are coming up in Tinker's Cove, Maine—though sadly, Lucy's four kids won't be home today. But the holiday turns tragic when Lucy finds beautiful Alison Franklin dead in Blueberry Pond.

No one knows much about Alison, except that she was the daughter of ultrawealthy investor Ed Franklin, whose new wife is around Alison's age. With heroin use increasing in town, police blame an accidental overdose, while her father casts vague accusations rooted in prejudice. But Lucy can't understand what terrible forces could lead a privileged woman to ruin...

As a state of unrest descends on Tinker's Cove, Lucy is thrown into a full-scale investigation. Now, Lucy must beat the killer to the finish line—or she can forget about stuffing and cranberry sauce...

"Timely...Meier's focus on racism gives this cozy a serious edge rare for this subgenre."—Publishers Weekly

"Reading a new Leslie Meier mystery is like catching up with a dear old friend."—Kate Carlisle, New York Times bestselling author

        July 15, 2017
        Meier dips her toes into the issues du jour as opioid addiction and white supremacy invade Tinker's Cove.While training for the Turkey Trot 5K along Blueberry Pond, local reporter Lucy Stone (British Manor Murder, 2016, etc.) discovers the body of lovely, blonde Alison Franklin, who appears to have died after accidentally falling through the ice. The subsequent drug arrest of three Mexicans, however, ignites a firestorm as rumors spread that Alison was high on opioids supplied by undocumented immigrants. Signs touting America for Americans spring up across the rural landscape, paid for by Alison's father, Trump look-alike Ed Franklin. The multimillionaire, whose ostentatious mansion and pregnant young trophy wife once made tongues wag and heads shake across Tinker's Cove, has now become a populist hero, especially to the residents who want to stop television chef Rey Rodriguez--who patiently explains that his ancestors are from Spain, not Mexico, every chance he gets--from opening a high-end restaurant on the site of the defunct Olde Irish Pub. Franklin tries to use his clout at a town council meeting, where he explains, "When one Mexican moves in you get a lot more. They're like mice." Next thing you know, someone's shot a hole through Franklin's skull as he drives down the street in his oversized SUV. Now Lucy's had enough. She needs to find out who's targeting the Franklin family before her town tears itself apart. Unlike the Public Theater's assassination of Julius Caesar, Meier's offing of a Trump avatar may fly under the radar. The dots between drugs, immigrants, and murder just can't be connected neatly enough to qualify this entry as either old-fashioned puzzle or contemporary social commentary.

        August 21, 2017
        Lucy Stone is dismayed to discover illegal drugs have established a foothold in bucolic Tinker’s Creek, Maine, in Meier’s timely 26th mystery featuring the part-time reporter and full-time snoop (after 2016’s British Manor Mystery). When pretty college-age Alison Franklin takes a fatal plunge into any icy pond, everyone in town assumes it was suicide related to drug use (but the reader knows otherwise from the prologue). The victim’s father, billionaire real estate developer Ed Franklin, blames “Mexicans.” Meanwhile, TV chef Rey Rodriguez aims to open an upscale restaurant in time for Thanksgiving. At the town hall meeting where Rey describes his plans, a woman in the audience expresses concern about the influx of drugs from Mexico and Rey’s being Mexican (he’s in fact American). Complications ensue when Rey’s handsome 30-year-old son heaps attention on Lucy’s teen daughter, Zoe. Meier’s focus on racism gives this cozy a serious edge rare for this subgenre. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency.
